"Seeing is touch at a distance," said Ida Rolf. Learn to see and understand postural patterns in the body, using the Anatomy Trains updated version of her masterful visual assessment. Work smarter, not harder, by identifying the strain patterns that underlie the pain patterns. See how the pain in their right shoulder is really set up by the collapse in the left ankle.

This workshop includes skills and small group exercises for standing, breathing, sitting as well as gait assessments. Develop more holistic strategies for resolving strain patterns and finding the structural ‘keys’ to create longer-lasting effective work. During this course we:

  1. Practice a simple but effective vocabulary for describing skeletal relationships – tilts, shifts, and rotations in the shoulders, ribs, pelvis, legs, and spine
  2. Use the Anatomy Trains map to see global as well as local soft-tissue and movement patterns
  3. Develop coherent single- or multi-session strategies based on what we see and feel

With your ability to read posture and movement, you will never be bored in airports again, and you will impress your clients with your ability to tie together the story 'written' into their body stance and attitude.
